Summary/Abstract: In this paper I explore the communication strategies employed by the Romanian professor Dimitrie Gusti (1880-1955), the founder of the Bucharest School of Sociology, in his various activities and endeavors. I will start by investigating his efforts to popularize innovations in university organization and in field research methods. I will also examine Gusti’s activities within the “Prince Carol” Royal Cultural Foundation and the methods he used to promote a new system of social intervention in villages of Romania. Furthermore, I will analyze the practices Gusti used to promote Romanian sociology abroad and, within this broad framework, I will deal in particular with the organization of an international congress of sociology planned to take place in Romania. Finally, I will look at the activities he undertook in his position of General Commissary of the Romanian pavilions included the International Exhibitions of Paris (1937) and New York (1939), which were widely and highly appreciated.
